Encana denies polluting Wyoming aquifer

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Encana Corp on Thursday denied that natural gas drilling activity in Pavillion, Wyoming polluted a water aquifer.

An Encana spokesman was responding to an Environmental Protection Agency investigation which concluded that drilling, including hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, was likely responsible for contaminating the aquifer with chemicals.
